Event Title

Concurrent Sessions A: Passage Effectiveness Monitoring in Small Streams III - Monitoring Fish Passage Effectiveness in Alaska

Location

Oregon State University

Description

Over the past decade numerous fish passage projects have been carried out in Alaska, primarily culvert replacements. This talk summarizes past and ongoing efforts by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to evaluate the effectiveness of replacement. The focus is on juvenile salmonid passage before and after replacement of presumed barrier culverts with stream simulation crossings at two locations; Slikok Creek, near Soldotna, AK and Buddy Creek, near Caswell, AK. These studies will improve our understanding of both the impact of culverts on fish movement and the response to barrier removal. Information will be used to evaluate the success of the chosen designs as well as to improve evaluation and prioritization efforts throughout the state.
